sexy liberal aisha tyler, voice deity jim ward. we were talking about aisha way up here fancy hotel, obama surrogate. can i tell you that jim ward actually helped me apply my false eyelashes, that's the extent of our staff. and do somebody do a bang trim during the break. >> it is humid here. the backs of my knees are sweating. >> stephanie: literally there are people fleeing from north carolina to another state because we are not the only ones
6:24am
in a crack hotel. >> where is eisenberg when you need them. >> stephanie: all of the glamor of the dnc. and you again were picked up at the airport by a fancy handler, i was picked up by the guy who owns this show and is trying to kill me for the life insurance money. i was like i could have taken a cab. and he is like oh know. >> the lobster was fabulous. [ laughter ] >> stephanie: we were just talking about how the dnc had -- it was like a little skit, a brown, face and a hispanic face and no policies that actually help any of those people. and i was laughing, and a guy said here i would like to talk to you on the air about how gay
6:25am
people should be conservative. >> oh, no. >> stephanie: yes, i'll get on that. >> yes the plank of the republican platform is gays go home. >> stephanie: seriously. is there any choice on that issues? >> no, literally they have -- they are like a hashtaging no home mow online. they don't want you. they are just not that into you. >> stephanie: but this is the first year that marriage equality is in the democrat platform. >> it is not in the republican platform? really? >> you have been raped, oh dang, just live with it. >> stuff happens. snoot it was like being dropped into a convention in 1952. >> have that baby and then don't
6:26am
give you any assistance from the government. it's magic that it happened. and then there is no one around you to help. >> stephanie: we have much smarter celebrities at our convention. i.e., aisha tyler. [ inaudible ] jackson. she said the todd akin was so blown out of proportion it is a joke. how many times do people get pregnant from a rape. i have read lots of articles. i know people because i'm 53. i have known a lot of people and i have never known anybody who got pregnant from a rape. and she said if i were raped and had a beautiful baby who was innocent that would be a
6:27am
blessing. the dna of a baby is its own. it's not the mothers or the fathers -- >> it came down to me when i was asleep. that's why when the baby comes out you are reminded every day of how you were brutally raped by another person. the idea that there are no exceptions for incest incest -- >> stephanie: yeah. >> it really bogles the mind. it's unfathomable but that whole platform where they say we love women, but we're going to force them to not have access to
6:28am
safe abortions, but also because they want to eliminate health care essentially we're not going to give you help at any turn. >> stephanie: right. >> and they were against the lilly ledbetter act. they pretty much can say they love women only when it comes down to actually loving women. >> stephanie: speaking of women, michelle obama has to speak tonight, and aisha tyler has her press handlers here and you have to go do something much bigger. and we are selling tickets at the sexy liberal show in new york city. i love you. i miss you already. >> i love you too. this was too short. >> stephanie: we'll be right back on the "stephanie miller show" live from the national democratic convention in charlotte.

[ ♪ music ♪ ] >> announcer: stephanie miller. >> color my kooky, but something very odd is going on here. >> stephanie: it is the "stephanie miller show" live. we are joined by bigwig congressman -- i always forget your title. it's incredibly long. >> you don't need to worry about that, but i am the senior on the advisory committee where paul ryan is the chairman. >> stephanie: oh, there you go.
6:34am
so they got no bounce at all from their convention. >> it looks like the trampoline did not work at all. and i think that says a lot about the fact that the american were listening and did not hear a lot. >> stephanie: just obama bad. >> yes and we were really straining our ears to hear what they were proposing for the country, and we heard nothing. >> stephanie: you heard what paul ryan was proposing, and so have the american people and i think they have largely rejected that. >> yes. but they didn't get into the details, they were very careful to stay away from that because it would be bad news for seniors, young people, and just about everybody except for mitt romney. there was a three-alarm fire for the fact checkers. >> stephanie: yeah, they keep
6:35am
asking where are the jobs? we were saying -- first of all when you get up staged by a chair at your own convention but mitt romney's speech got the lowest of any in history. >> it was a flat monotone speech. and the reason is they don't want to tell you what is in the plan. because by design it gives seniors a voucher that becomes less valuable as healthcare costs go up. they cut deeply into the investment in our students future, and they do it all to provide another round of tax breaks for folks at the very top while they raise middle class taxes by about $2,000 for the
6:36am
typical family. so that's why they don't want to tell how they are going to do it. >> stephanie: it was very touching paul ryan and his grandmother, but people were saying if this is so great, why can't we have it now? >> that's right. that's one question. and the other thing -- and this is really important, while the voucher plan may not kick in for ten years other changes they are making to medicare will begin immediately. if you are a senior you will pay more not ten years from now, but right now, because in obamacare we closed the so-called doughnut hole. they reopened it. in obamacare we want to encourage seniors to be able to get more health care. when romney says he doesn't want to take the savings that we got,
6:37am
which even paul ryan took in his budget those are savings we achieve by stopping overpayments to private insurance countries when romney says they want to restart the overpayments, seniors are going to pay more. >> stephanie: right. right. congressman we were talking about it's always good to have the last year and who decides that every year? >> my understanding is there's some formula, either your alternate or the party in the white house goes last, again, i don't know. >> stephanie: right. if only the president were a good speaker, we might have something to look -- [ laughter ] >> stephanie: in this gallup poll has the highest rating ever. we have michelle obama to look forward tonight.
6:38am
>> yeah, michelle obama is going to again, i think remind people that she and the president, they came from humble beginnings, and they are the beneficiaries of the american dream -- >> stephanie: apparently you did not hear about the tuna fish and pasta that mitt romney and ann romney had to scrape by on. they had to sell stocks for god's sakes. >> the big lie of the romney campaign is this notion that somehow the president doesn't understand the american dream, when in fact the president is the greatest example of the american dream. and what the president wants to do is to make sure that that dream is available for other people so you don't have to have started on third base in order to make it in this country. make sure middle income folks and people working hard every day, they can make it just like he and michelle did and i think
6:39am
that's what you will be hearing. >> stephanie: you are not their strategy, neither am i, but they should probably stop trying to make the romneys seem like regular people, because it just gets more and more awkward. whether it's todd akin on these awful rape comments it's not just one or two guys misspeaking. it is their policies, you know, and how they -- how they -- first off, women -- this is not fictional war on women, and i think women are getting it this year, don't you? >> i do think they are. and, you know, romney and ryan say the government has no role in helping the auto industry when they were going down the tubes. in fact, of course romney said let them go bankrupt. so role for the government in helping middle class america -- >> stephanie: that was unfortunate he wrote that down. >> but when it goes to getting
6:40am
involved in people's lives in the bedroom, there's a big role right there. so they claim they don't see the role. and the government will get involved when it comes to all of the things like preventing people from having an exception to the right to abortion after rape. it is right in their platform. >> stephanie: congressman we have had a lot of concern, and we have had a lot of big victories, in fact in ohio. how are you feeling about that? because it's not one state that they are doing everything they can to suppress turnout. >> yeah, here we are the greatest democracy on earth, and here they are out there
6:41am
blatantly trying to pass laws in states that limit people's ability to vote. >> stephanie: and they are not bright enough to remember which things you don't say out loud like this will help governor romney win pennsylvania. >> that's right. romney is in because we're keeping all of the voters out. >> stephanie: john boehner went on record saying we hope they don't turn out. obviously he was trying to make a point about the economy, but he basically said we hope they don't turn out -- is that a policy strategy? >> here the united states is a beacon of democracy to people around the world, and our republican leaders are saying to americans, we're going to make it harder for you to vote. >> stephanie: right. and one thing that is very key
6:42am
is voting is a right. it's not like driving is a privilege it's a right. >> that's right. and we have had big struggles in this country to make sure everybody has that right. so republicans are working very hard to turn back the clock when it comes to people's voting rights. it's a scandal. and the reason is they figure if they can limit people from voting, that -- the big money guys will be able to call the shots in the agenda. i guess we shouldn't have been surprised but during the % republican convention in tampa they had this big yacht show up to thank all of the romney dones or and it turned out it was from the cayman islands. >> stephanie: that's right. >> so mitt romney can send jobs
6:43am
overseas -- a lot of companies set up these fake fronts in the cayman islands, it's a way to offshore american profits and american jobs. >> when the president points that out he is angry and full of rage. >> stephanie: if you say you believe in america and you want to be the leader of america and you invest your money in the cayman islands and switzerland. >> stephanie: that's right. he parked a lot of his personal money in switzerland. and a big debate in this country is reforming the american tax code. so i think it would be indestructive to see how mitt romney used those loopholes.
6:44am
and the cayman islands is a clairing example where a lot of american corporations will park their profits overseas and by setting up their -- their sort of headquarters there, they actually can funnel their profits through there, and reduce the taxes here at home at the same time they are offshoring american jobs. >> stephanie: yeah. >> so this is a big issue. >> stephanie: congressman real quick before you go what is going to be the theme? >> tomorrow we'll hear from bill clinton, and, look -- here is the thing. when bill clinton was president, we took an balanced approach to the economy and to reducing the deficit, right? so bill clinton said we have got to make these important investments in jobs and the economy, and we're going to ask
6:45am
the rich people to pitch in a little more. at the end of the eight-year period, we actually balanced our budget. >> stephanie: right. >> then we has george bush back-to-back tax cuts the economy tanked and the deficit shot up, the president is saying we need an balanced approach. and that way we can last into the future because we want to empower americans. so, look, i know people don't want to do one big flashback to the bush strategy. this is not about the past it's about the fact that romney and ryan is proposing the same strategy -- >> stephanie: on steroids. that's right. congressman chris van hollen
6:46am

7:00am
president, 2 million people have donated $25 or less 1.4 million have given more than once women are donating more than men, and the emphasis is on retirees students, business leaders, and teachers. speaking of teachers the president has been asked by the cbs affiliate in colorado to rate himself and he rates himself incomplete. he says there is more work to be done on his policies and programs. he was asked to grade himself back in 2009 by oprah, and gave himself a b-plus and took a lot of flak from that. and paul and janna ryan now have their official secret service names. paul ryan is being called bow hunter, andian that will be butter cup. apparently ryan picked his own

president of one of our favorite unions in the usa. thanks for taking time with us. >> good to be here. >> stephanie: you guys are strongly behind the president, right? >> we have 180 delegates and alternates here at this convention. we didn't have anything to do with the selection of charlotte, but that's not the point right now. >> stephanie: i just think we have really got to get the energy. because i could not be a bigger supporter of unions and the work they do, and we have seen such -- between scott walker and all of these people we saw last week, right? at the republican convention it is almost to a person in their party. they would like to see unions gone forever, right? >> absolutely, and i want them to keep on talking. talking about right to work
7:06am
nationally. taking away collective bargaining limiting our ability to participate in political programs, let them keep talking. >> stephanie: interesting you just said that i just brought up scott walker. he did not run on union bashing. he did not run on taking away people's collective bargaining rights. they already made concessions, right? it was all about taking away their power. >> when he was elected one of the first actions he took was to take away collective bargaining and he uses as an excuse the budget. when we negotiated sat down we publicly told him we were willing to make concessions because we understood and he
7:07am
completely ignored that. >> stephanie: well you say that because as republicans tell us you are one of those greedy union bosses. [ laughter ] >> stephanie: when you look at the auto industry, what a triumph for america that was. >> it was. >> stephanie: we have been paid back, and we're number 1 again. isn't that a perfect example of why unions exist? you would think that would be a proud moment for america. >> you would think so but that's not the case, and what you heard last week just shows you that that was not the case. these folks are interested in building more power, building more wealth for the top 1% of this country, and they be ignoring the 99%. they believe somehow magically this is going to trickle down. never worked before and won't
7:08am
work now. >> stephanie: how would this happen? said i this many times on the air, that teachers and firemen and policemen have become like the entity. i mean it's really -- there -- i don't understand how routing for less teachers became a good thing. they almost have routed for public layoff. and unemployment would be a full point lower if we just had the same public employee growth as we did under george bush. >> that's absolutely right. and they have been successful in making us the enemy. but that's a part of the ball game and their plan. their plan is to have as much power as they possibly can. we are the last line of defense here, and we're going to form our coalitions form our
7:09am
alliances, work like we did in ohio. develop though coalitions all over this country, and working with the 99% who want to have a skin in the game if you will. >> stephanie: lee, i am with you on that. and we talked about healthcare in the last segment. that's one example, where romney is running on repealing it entirely. and you look at all of the components of the president's bill, and they are very popular. the republicans have done such a good job demonizing it i think we have had a hard time defeating that. >> stephanie: yes, it helps seniors all of those things. >> stephanie: exactly. it seems we can start to turn that pr battle around.
7:10am
>> absolutely. president obama wants to continue to support working families, create jobs in this country, good-paying jobs. they continue to ignore his jobs bill that is throughout the house and washington, d.c. so we need to make aware of what is at steak. >> stephanie: and it's funny lee, i think this time on almost every single issue, the choice could not be clearer. i have been talking to -- on women's rights -- you pick it -- >> stephanie: civil rights voting rights. and that's good in politics, they literally got no bounce out of their convention -- >> 1%. >> stephanie: oh i'm sorry. i misspoke. [ laughter ] >> stephanie: but the president is the divider, when this republican plan was bob dole's
7:11am
plan. it literally couldn't be clearer than anything the president is for they are against it. paul ryan made an argument for stimulus under george bush. when obama says it it is bad. and that has been the one goal. >> they have a very effective noise machine as i call it but i think the folks are waking up, and people are starting to pay attention to what they are saying. they looked at the convention and said woe, we want to continue to move forward. we don't want to change medicare, or lose social security or our healthcare reform torn up in shreds. >> stephanie: that's a good point. that's a perfect slogan for us forward, because if you were watching the convention last
7:12am
week it was all backward. literally. and that's why somebody was saying it's not blaming bush for everything -- >> they want to build a bridge to the 19th century. >> stephanie: yeah, with non-union labor. but that's exactly it. they want to go back on each and every issue. i'm excited about the convention this week. and i think the president will give a great speak on thursday. >> stephanie: i think he will give a great speech. but when we leave this city -- when we leave charlotte, we have got to recommit ourselves to make sure we do everything we possibly can to organize our unions and allies and that 99% to make sure this country continues to move forward. this may be a non-union city
7:13am

7:22am
that. >> stephanie: here is an interesting fun fact. as we were on al gore's television network we were talk about mitt romney's speech got the lowest gallup poll approve at it rating in history. >> stephanie: lower in 44 years. he got a 38% approval rating -- >> my approval rating is just the right height. >> stephanie: it's the right height for us. >> right. >> stephanie: 52% for bob dole's speech -- >> bob dole ought to stop referring to bob dole in third person. >> stephanie: who thinks bob dole's speech was good? and 51% for al gore's speech as opposed to mitten's paltry 38%.

>> that sucks. >> stephanie: al gore was awesome. >> that whole team was amazing. >> stephanie: and this is the saddest one, 51% george w. bush. when people think george bush is a much better speaker than you are -- >> we got to get rid of that surplus means you are paying too much tax. you are welcome. same age as my mother. >> stephanie: president obama said he's a huge clint eastwood fan. >> maybe that's why he did it. >> he had directed a few great movies and acted in a few great movies. >> stephanie: the president said if you are easily offended you should probably choose another profession. good comedy is based on truth and if the president had a

reputation of some crazy person who telling people to go f themselves. huh when he has done that? >> that's funny. because that would be based on truth. >> stephanie: now that my hair is doing whatever it is doing in the charlotte humidity i have a little sympathy for clint. because i think that's what hand. >> oh. >> stephanie: that was the worst thing about turning to the side to the chair, because that's not a good angle for your hair. >> yeah, that hair wasn't vetted, much like the speech. >> it is clint eastwood what could possibly go wrong. >> yeah it's a dottering

80-year-old man, what could possibly go on. >> stephanie: but then he upstaged the whole convention. >> he did. >> i still think clint is getting revenge for -- >> stephanie: thank you. >> thank you. >> see people don't care if you are on air live -- i almost got a paper cut in my eye. they just handed you a schedule -- this could have waited a minute and a half -- >> well, you know the schedule to know when scheduling papers are going to land on your desk. >> stephanie: a publicist once said, you don't understand how low on the food chain radio is. >> but, we're on tv now. that should give us a raise. >> stephanie: no wonder we got

7:32am
organized party. >> no, but we get things done. >> stephanie: we were talking about mitt romney first of all got the lowest bump in history for his speech. he got a nothing bounce or a 1% bounce depending on the poll. but you had some different opinions. >> i come from the family that says ask what you can do for your country. and america is a great nation that asks us to do great things and you had mitt romney not mention once the soldiers in afghanistan. 2,000 people have given their lives, no mention at all. he says what i want to do is help your families and he demeans the idea of helping the planet >> stephanie: it was like a snarky global warning joke. >> yeah, i think it says we
7:33am
believe in a shrunk envision of who we are, which is only ourselves. and there is a spiritual side to running for president that appeals to our best selves. he has none of that. >> stephanie: that's interesting that you say that because once again the premise of what he said was based on a lie. the president always ran on we this is the moment we decide. >> yeah. >> stephanie: and this is like the we didn't build that. everyone knows what the president meant. >> yes, first of all you don't want to acknowledge -- i think they have been reading too much rand. >> stephanie: exactly. >> it's we the people in the
7:34am
constitution. we accomplish great things. we put a person on the moon. not we're glad that somebody can walk on the moon but it took many scientists to make that happen, and the whole thing about america is that we can do great things when we work together. that was totally missing. >> stephanie: actually you didn't build that, the roads going to your house, the crazy socialist dwight eisenhower. >> yeah even president nixon believed in building our sewer system. a little known fact about me stephanie, i was the sewer secretary -- >> stephanie: that is so hot. do you lead with that? >> i like to mention that
7:35am
because democrats get to the moon and also make sure your water is safe. >> stephanie: there you go. >> i hate that they are trying to say we hate wealth we hate success and all of that. >> and the other thing is -- i think the question is what does success mean? the teachers are successful. the police. nobody goes into a burning building for mere money. they go in because they want to help our neighbors. >> right. >> if success is only making a lot of money and creating jobs and community, that's not a country. >> stephanie: we just got a letter last week that said it's not the romney's wealth that people have a problem with it's -- they said the kennedies were also very wealthy, but they had a sense of helping the people. >> that's right. and franklin roosevelt, our
7:36am
country was founded by people -- they weren't exactly poor, but the plight of happiness is the idea that you president, give, reduce fight the war, give something of yourself, and you have none of that. i heard none of that. they couldn't even mention the soldiers. >> stephanie: yeah, and you want to be commander in chief. and he has no details on what he would do differently. >> the details are he wants to cut your taxes, he wants to increase military spending he now apparently wants to save medicare -- you can't do all of this at once. >> he also wants to attack iran and russia apparently. >> exactly. there are really two visions one based on honesty one is being able to say to the american
7:37am
people, each of us has to give something up, and as a result we are going to be stronger together. >> stephanie: that's right. we chatted a little bit before we started about this war on women, that i don't think women are fooled by putting condoleezza rice and governor martinez and having ann romney yell i love you women. >> i thought that was so insulting. women know about men who say i love you, and don't do anything about it. hello? we have heard that before. [ laughter ] >> but we're beyond the words. we would like a few results. >> stephanie: listen, i gave up on that long ago, but my point kathleen is, what are your pollties? did you sign lilly ledbetter. >> paul ryan was against lilly
7:38am
ledbetter, which says that women will be paid as much as men. women need to work they need education, and they need to protect their bodies. the idea that they wouldn't allow abortion in the case of rape or incest is it horrendous. >> stephanie: yeah, and paul ryan said, it's a start where mitt romney is on abortion meaning mitt romney if anything has not come to the center in this general election we will be pushed further and further to the right. >> stephanie: i think the problem with mitt romney is he has been pushed all the time. we have not heard him stand up for one thing, and say to his face, no that's tough. no we can't do that. i feel sorry for the guy in a sense. and you really shouldn't pity
7:39am
the republican nominee but i do. >> it really feels like he doesn't believe in anything beside destroys companies so he can profit it from. >> when you are in private equity, beliefs are not what you are judged on you are judged on your results. so his whole experience is not what it means to be president. >> stephanie: he ran against a guy named ted kennedy -- >> i remember, yes i do. >> i have heard of him >> stephanie: and i was saying the only clip i saw when mitt romney actually had a core principal is he said i will be more pro choice than ted kennedy. a good friend died from a back alley abortion and he said i
7:40am
will never be multiple choice, i will always protect a women's rights. >> he ran in a progressive state, and then he changed his position, which i think is unfortunate, and i think that does something to your soul. but i think the great thing is in this convention we'll have president obama, a person who has created jobs has gone after osama bin laden, has provided and we're going to see it in the coming years how health care is going to be provided to all americans. >> stephanie: as you were speaking, we were talking about senator kennedy. i remember that speech was just amazing. it was the work of my lifetime health care. it was so amazing that we finally got it done and yet you think what would teddy think
7:41am
about the efforts americans made, and they are trying to tear it down. that's what they are running on is just tearing down tearing down. no thoughts on what they are going to replace it. >> they are not interested in making sure that everybody has healthcare. that's not their goal. their goal is more money to though wealthy. that's -- i mean, i can't see any other goal than that more money to the wealthy, and women have to have children that they don't want. >> stephanie: yeah. >> that's about it. sorry -- go ahead. >> no no, i'm sorry. no i was somewhere else. >> when you look at what we're going to go forward with, i think we have a great four years in front of us. i think we'll get much more energy independence already under president obama, we're importing less oil than we have ever. more money is going to come into the state and federal
7:42am
government. more jobs are going to be created, and we are going to be put to rebuild our infrastructure and put funding into schools and science. i think the next four years will really be important for this country, and people look to america for what it promises on the rule of law, on freedom, and on financial responsibility. so i see a great future and i hope president obama in his speech -- and i trust he will will say -- he is a leader but in a democracy we all have to participate -- >> stephanie: i was just going to say you kenendys are just so optimistic. what are you future plans? >> my future plans are to complain as strongly as i can for this ticket. i see how important it is that this america be strong not only
7:43am
for us but people around the word. there's this idea that all are created equal that is a fabulous idea. >> stephanie: i have to tell you before we go, we do the sexy liberal comedy tour but first of all it is a joke but i always do the jfk quote about what it means to be a liberal, and that is what should inspire us, that it's nothing crazy and socialist, it's like do you like having your weekends off? >> yeah. >> stephanie: there are so many things i think we fought for over the years and it's taking that back and taking those progressive pauses back right? >> i think you have said it really well stephanie. a president can only be a president if there's a population that can listen to him. one of the great stories is when franklin roosevelt saw the war in europe, he wanted to go to
7:44am
war, but people weren't ready. even after pearl harbor people were ready to go to war unless hitler declared war on us -- >> which he did. >> which he did. but it is important the president has people like you and me working in the trenches. >> stephanie: i am going to wisconsin next week. any chance i can get into the compound for cocktails? >> my mother would love to have you. >> stephanie: i'll just knock. >> that would be great. >> stephanie: kathleen thank you so much, and we're so glad you could join us. >> thank you so much. >> stephanie: we have to go to break. the "stephanie miller show" will be right back. >> beautifully wrapped, glossy, sweet-smelling show. >> announcer: it's the "stephanie miller show."
